with some trepidation my husband and i took our 3 and 2 year old out for our anniversary. We needn't have worried, from the moment we entered we were made welcome, the children made much of and our meal excellent. Thank you Istanbul

I've been going to Istanbul (the restaurant, not the Turkish city) for a few years now, and I've always found it to be an enjoyable experience. The food is astoundingly good, the staff are friendly, and it's relatively inexpensive (for the quality of food and service). I always make sure to take my mates over when they visit, and their reviews have always been positive, with one exception. The one exception was a ginger person, and everyone knows gingers have no souls, so we can ignore him. And even he said that had the waitress been single it would have gone from a 4/10 to a 7/10. Which is probably another reason to ignore him as well.

I also get takeaway from here quite often, and the extras included with meals are very good. Easily the best restaurant in Louth, quite possibly the best in Lincolnshire. I've never had a meal that's been less than fantastic here.

We have eaten at The Istanbul BBQRestaurant a few times and the food is always very good. We have eaten in and had takeaways from there and they are always very good. The food is quite expensive but you do get what you pay for. The staff are always very friendly and the service is good.

Thank you for your review.We are very grateful to all of our customers who write to Trip Advisor about the Istanbul,and we are pleased to say that the vast majority of the comments are very positive indeed!However,occasionally we get negative feedback,such as someone who wrote recently to say that they had to wait a long time for their main course at a time when the restaurant wash't very busy.All of our food is FRESHLY cooked,so there is always at least a ten minute wait.However,unfortunately,in that particular case,these was a slight communication problem,as one of our newer waitresses failed to point out to the customer that the meal they had ordered would take about half an hour to arrive because of the way it is cooked.This applies to the Sea Bass,Salmon and also to those meat dishes that are cooked in a clay pot.Following this feedback,we have decided to chenge our menu to include a note against these dishes to let people know the expected cooking time.We hope this will avoid any future misunderstanding.Best wishes Irina
